Support » Networking WordPress » All subsites "missing" after update to WP 3.2/BP 1.5

  • Resolved KatieBen


    I updated to WP 3.2.1, and BP 1.5 – and wasn’t able to update my network using the auto script. When I try to access any of my network sites – such as – the site isn’t accessible.

    Here’s the error I get:

    Warning! Problem updating Your server may not be able to connect to sites running on it. Error message: Couldn’t resolve host ‘’

    I’ve regenerated permalinks on the main site – other than that I’m not quite sure what to do. Any ideas or pointers?

  • Did you follow the manual upgrade instructions here:

    In particular, could you have deleted the .htaccess file in your WordPress root?

    The subdomain sites work on wildcards, not permalinks. 😉 Those are for subfolders.

    Try going to – what happens?

    Check and see if wildcard dns stuff got messed up at the same time. The upgrade cannot change this, it may just be a coincidence.

    make sure your wp-config file still has multisite defines in it.

    Thanks guys – Andrea_r, it was exactly a wildcard dns problem.

    This is my dev site, and while I’d set up wildcards on my live site, I’d forgotten I needed to do so with the dev site. I finally thought to add that last night, and though it didn’t work right away (propagation time of some sort?), everything’s working just fine this morning. Hooray! (:

    Thanks! (:
